Set in a pretty lane with garlands of fairy lights. Lovely relaxed vibe and great food. All very fresh and delicious. We asked the waiter for his recommendation on the wine and he didn’t disappoint. A crisp Etna white at a very reasonable price. If...we had stayed in Catania longer than 1 night we would have definitely returnedMore

The food was fine. The service was not! Just went to eat here and we had to wait 30 minutes for our crème brule, turned out the waiter didn’t even order it. When we asked him about our food, he pretended he didn’t know about...it. Also the waiters were not friendly.More

This was our first meal in Sicily and positively set the tone for all the delicious Sicilian meals awaiting us during our visit. The pasta with pistachios and the swordfish rolls tasted divine after our long flight. We thought we were going to get a...decent supper but it was much more than that. Worth a visit.More

We spent 8 days in Rome, Catania ja Syracusa and my favorite meal of the trip was from this restaurant - Polpette di melenzane fritte con salsa, ricotta salata e basilico, or eggplant "meatballs" was just fantastic. I also ordered a pizza and was only...barely able to eat everything. Portions are way bigger than in Rome.More

Good food (i chose pasta) and wine, for a 5* a bit chaotic and unattentive waiter. Perfect location in a very nice street. Many locals

My friend and I had a lovely lunch; swordfish lasagne, focaccia and stuffed sardines with and orange and fennel salad. All delicious and beautifully presented. The street in which the restaurant is situated is very creatively curated with plenty of other bars and restaurants nearby....The staff were pleasant and attentive. Thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and experience.More

We came here after discovering the street trying to find a different restaurant. Really delicious dinner and great service. We had the anti pasti meat platter with pizza dough - delicious starter! And then both opted for spaghetti with prosciutto, one in a cream sauce...one in tomato - really nice touch served in the metal dishes. Beautiful food and nice atmosphere.More

We had dinner here and enjoyed both food and wine. We had the lentil soup, pasta, salad and salmon. All portions were very generous..in fact too much. We should have shared an entree. Service was friendly and helpful.

Super nice restaurant, great food and excellent service. Located in a crowded restaurant area, offers very nice options to anybody. The location is simple, efficient and the service super attentive. Steaks are great, pasta too and pizza delicious. The wine list is comprehensive and desserts...adorable. Good vibe and nice atmosphere in a super full restaurant means a lot.More
